German Army Marder 1 IFV upgrade moves ahead
by Christopher F Foss

The German Army is moving forward with the life-extension programme for its Marder 1 infantry fight vehicles (IFVs), 50 years after the first rolled off the production line.

Rheinmetall announced in January 2020 that it had been awarded a EUR110 million (USD133 million) contract to supply the Germany Army with 78 kits to upgrade 71 Marder 1A5 IFV between 2020 and 2023 to extend their operational lives. The remaining seven kits will be used as spares.

As well as the kits, the company will also supply vehicle tool kits and special tools, logistical support, initial stores of spare parts, training, and instruction.

Rheinmetall told Janes that the first of these kits will be integrated into a Marder 1A5 IFV at the company's Unterluss facilities by the third quarter of 2022 for trials. The German Army will install these in the Marder 1A5 IFV.

Current Marder 1A5 IFVs are powered a MTU MB 833 Ea-500 6-cylinder water-cooled diesel developing 600 hp, coupled to a HSWL 194 automatic transmission.

This gives a power-to-weight ratio of 16.21 hp/tonne as the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the Marder 1A5 IFV has increased to 37,000 kg due to an enhanced armour protection package (for higher level of protection against mines and improvised explosive devices [IEDs]).

A Rheinmetall spokesperson confirmed that the new powerpack consists of this engine upgraded to develop 755 hp, coupled to an upgraded HSWL 194 transmission and fitted with digitised engine electronics, and when fitted will give the IFV a power-to-weight ratio of 20.40 hp/tonne.

Germany launches the development of new airborne tracked armored vehicle

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, 04 AUGUST 2021 15:47
On June 22, 2021, IABG (Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft mbH) a German analysis and test engineering company based in Ottobrunn near Munich, commissioned by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) of the German army, has presented a demonstrator for new light tracked armored vehicle for German airborne troops, under the program name of GSD LuWa.

Under the program name of GSD LuWa, the German armed forces have requested a new light airborne vehicle to replace the family of Wiesel vehicles which was developed for the German Army to meet a requirement for an air-transportable light armored vehicle for use by its airborne troops. Between 1989 and 1992, the German Army took delivery of a total of 345 Wiesel 1 vehicles armed with a Raytheon Systems Company TOW ATGW launcher or a Rheinmetall 20 mm cannon.

The development of the GSD LuWa vehicle will include different partners including ACS, IABG, FFG and Valhalla turret, and more.

According to the first pictures published on Internet, the GSD LuWa is based on independent twin-tracks suspension, each including three road wheels and one return-roller. The roof of the vehicle seems to be fitted with an unmanned weapon station armed with one 30 mm cannon.

The front of the hull is equipped with two large bullet-proof windows offering 180° view for the operators, as wells as one small window on each side of the hull.

The GSD LuWa demonstrator is equipped with a Valhalla turret that can be armed with a 25mmx137 or 30mmx173 cannon. These types of cannon can fire a wide range of ammunition including the APFSDS-T round (Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot), a type of kinetic energy penetrator ammunition used to destroy armored vehicles. The weapon station is equipped with a state-of-the-art electro-optical sensor unit, allowing quick target acquisition and visual identification.

The German Armed Forces, or Bundeswehr, received its new batch of brand-new Leopard 2A7V main battle tanks on Wednesday.

The 393 tank battalion stationed in Bad Frankenhausen in northern Thuringia was the first unit of the German armed forces to receive the latest version of the Leopard 2 tank in the A7V configuration.

The Bundeswehr’s 393 tank battalion in Bad Frankenhausen received the first four of a total of 44 new battle tanks on Wednesday. The battalion is said to be the first unit of the Bundeswehr to receive this tank. 32 more are to be added by the end of September. Another eight are to follow next year. The tanks of the previous version A6 currently used by the battalion will be given to other units.

The Leopard 2A7V is the latest version of the iconic Leopard 2 and one of the most capable tank versions across the German Army. It is an advanced version of the tank with a new laser rangefinder and thermal imaging device.

The new tank equips with a modified barrel that gains advantages through better dueling capabilities. The barrel of the 120-millimeter smooth-barreled cannon has been hardened and can fire future modern range-extended ammunition. With this ammunition, the Leopard 2 A7V can reach a maximum combat range of up to 5,000 meters.

Rheinmetall specialists also eliminated obsolescent features in the fire control computers, Battle Management System (BMS) and control consoles.

The BMS is the new digital command technology on the battlefield. With it, troops, from battle tanks to individual riflemen, can exchange important information in an uncomplicated and time-saving manner. This is supposed to give them a tactical advantage in battle. The BMS shows your own position and the positions of your own forces on the electronic map. Furthermore, guidance lines, tactical orders and commands can be transmitted. If an enemy is sighted, this can be marked on the map and transmitted to all other own forces. The crew can also look forward to air conditioning for longer durability.
